Recipe Box, Roasted Stone Fruit and Berry Salad

When I ate the first bite of this salad I said “Pie!  It’s tastes just like pie!”

The warm fruit with the creamy gorgonzola was like a bite of a peach cobbler or strawberry pie…

Place in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes

The cheese melts and the fruit softens and renders a sweet juice

The juices from the roasted fruit and the melted gorgonzola will coat the greens and your eyes will roll and you’ll want to smile, but you’ll be too busy chewing and eye rolling and OMG ing

  8. Jenna, this salad sounds divine! Can’t wait to try it. I spent a few days this week at the beach house and visited Oh So Coastal — oh, my, such lovely things! And guess what? They opened a second store on Hwy 59 which is just a few minutes from my house. Had to exercise restraint to only buy a few simple decor pieces — some driftwood candle holders. Lots to think and dream about in their stores!
